Greetings, my friends! Welcome to my first- and only- Soulfire report! As most of you are aware, we are now in the process of creating a new Battle Team as Soulfire ascends to Legendary Unit status. We have recently run a poll in which the concept of a Secret Militant Order was voted on as the winner. Both Mord and myself are currently in the process of drawing up some unit concepts around the idea of a secret militant order, and will submit them to you guys over the course of the weekend for a vote. In the meantime, if you have ideas or feedback regarding the team concept, by all means hit us up via email or Telegram! We’ll love to hear what y’all have to say!
On a related note, we are also now wanting to hear your suggestions for names for our new Battle Team! Braecen has made some suggestions of his own, but I want to hear from you, my dear friends! You are what makes this team run and function, and therefore it is your input I want to hear! To sweeten the pot, I’ve made this into a Manual competition, so the chance for a very easy Crescent is also on the table! All you need to do is suggest a couple names into the Battle Team Names! email thread, and you are in the running! So reply with your suggestions and snap up a Crescent and participation points!
We have a number of competitions running at any given time, my friends, but here are a couple that I would highly encourage you to participate in for the chance at participation and an easy Crescent!
A fun and relaxing flash game competition run by our very own Riverche! It’s a very calming game in which you gather little blue birds and bonus stars while trying to avoid the nasty red and white birds. All the while, nice and soothing music is playing to mellow you out. Check it out!
This one really needs no description - It’s the opportunity to develop your own character and his/her place in the Battle Team without a prompt to tie you down or restrict your creativity- and even better: No word limits! Not no maximum word limit, but no word limit period! I entered last month’s open prompt and snapped up an easy Crescent with a 300 word story about Zakath reading an email. I hope that y’all can participate and that I get to read some of your awesome writing!
Our own Celahir and Warp is running another gaming event in which we can game to our heart’s content and pick up not only Clusters, but Crescents as well! For the next two months, there will be a combination of specific game competitions and Free Play, in which you just play whatever Brotherhood-approved competition you want to, and when you submit to the Free Play competition, it will give you points toward the overall competition! Check it out!
Run by HQD’s Aedile, Terran Koul, this event promises to be an epic one that will weave a new path into Arcona’s storyline! Stay tuned as the events are set into motion! I, for one, am looking forward to seeing what’s in store for us! Check out the comps and participate as much as you’re able!
Shameless plug #1 - for all you people who haven’t gotten enough SA credit, this one is for you! Simply do as much as you can and rack up those points! It doesn’t matter your scores, but only the amount you do! Let’s get those thinking hats on and rock the Shadow Academy!
Shameless plug #2 - this fiction competition is all about your training. Most of us don’t really think about where we got those sweet feats on our CS or that awesome Force Power, but we just “happen” to acquire them and roll with it. This is your chance to roleplay out even a tiny fraction of how your character would have gotten that special ability. This month’s focus is on the most obvious tool in a Dark Jedi’s arsenal - the Lightsaber itself!
With Soulfire transititing to a Legendary Unit, our own Sashar Arconae has decided to transfer over to Styx Battle Team to lend his considerable expertise toward raising Styx to glorious new heights! We wish him the best of luck as he settles into his new home!
Freza Hioak has gone silent and was transferred to the Rogues.
Note: This current report documents medals, promotions, and SA courses taken since 2/2 when last SF report was given, to 4/5 as of right now. Also, all stats for new members of SF (Nath and myself), are only since joining SF.
We are in exciting times with changes sweeping through the Dark Brotherhood and Arcona itself, both IC and OOC. New competitions are being run every week, gaming activity is on the rise, fiction events are being run, whatever activity you love to do within the Brotherhood, the opportunity is there waiting for you!
Which leads me to ask you a question, my friends. As your new Battle Team Leader, it is my job to ensure that everybody in this BT has fun and is able to participate to their heart’s content. I am your servant above all else. So what is it that you would like to see from myself and Mord as we move forward? What kind of competitions would you like to see from us? What can we do for you to ensure that you make the most of your time here in Arcona and the Brotherhood? Please leave us a comment below, email us privately, or hit us up on Telegram (@Zakath for me, @Mordamen_Bast for Mord)
We are eager to hear from you! It is you- the members of this Battle Team, that makes this whole experience possible!
Reflections of a Lonely Philosopher
Greetings everyone, this is going to be the place where I pontificate about things such as War and Peace, or What Is Our Purpose In Life, or Who Are We? or maybe just say hello and introduce myself. Whatever works.
So - Hi! It’s me, Mord your new Battleteam Sergeant! As one who has started his time here in the DB within Arcona, i’m standing before you with a torn heart. While I am excited to be a part of the team that is creating a new concept and battleteam, i’m also sorry to see Soulfire go. Even though it’s ascending to truly legendary status (hehe, see what I did there), it has always been my home here in Arcona, and it’s been where I started my journey as a wee little acolyte and I will be sad to see it no longer as part of the House’s roster.
But moving onto official things - if it’s one thing that I would like you to take home with you from this report, it’s: communication is key. As Zakath most ably put:
As in all things in life, if we don’t communicate and talk to each other then things will never move forward and never get better. So feel free to hit us up on any medium and we will be extremely happy to hear from you!
I'm honored and thankful for the opportunity to bid Soulfire as a unit in Arcona farewell. Soulfire has always held a special place in my heart. It was my introduction to DB leadership and resulted in my ascension to Consul and enabled all that followed. To all of you in Soulfire heading to the new team, I wish you good luck and urge you to take this opportunity to create something great. To everyone who has had a hand in creating Soulfire and to everyone who has been a part of it over it's long residence as a unit within Arcona, I thank you. Many people, including myself, would not have had the opportunities and careers in the DB without you. Soulfire is not disappearing, but this does feel like the end of an era.
I wish Ninj and Mord good luck and a great future with the new team, and once again, thanks for letting me be a part of the Soulfire Battle Team for one last time.
